Creating a Blast Effect Animation in 3ds Max


Things have been static at Designzzz for 2 years now; so today, let’s make them a little more dynamic. We’ll create a Video Animation effect in 3D Max or 3D Studio Max. This is the ideal tutorial if you are a beginner in 3D animation. We only use the basic tools and no plugins or other such applications.

We’ll create a routine sphere circle and then blast it off so that Designzzz can emerge.

If you have any ideas for more 3D tutorials, don’t hesitate to share them in comments section.

Move bomb icon to the center of the sphere and set these values of the bomb space warp. Change the color of the sphere to red.

 Now get the track bar at 15 and render it.

In this render we see that it is not too much realistic. Let’s make it better – right click on sphere, click on Object properties and from motion blur section select Image option.

Render it again at frame 15. Broken pieces are blurred and more realistic.

tutorial for beginner level

Now let write some text in the middle of the sphere. Set any font of your choice and set the size of text which should be smaller than the sphere. I set its size to 40, applied Extrude Modifier and gave it a value of 6.

Click on Auto Key so that we can move the text wherever we want to.

Move the track bar (Time slider) to 45, right click on text, select rotate and rotate the text to stand it up.

Now get the time slide to 70 and scale it to 300 times.

We’re all set and prepared to render the entire animation.

Press F10 and click on active time segment. Set output size to 640×480 and click on file button to save the file in any location (the best course of action is to use an AVI outpout type).
